About Chris Pronger

He was born in Dryden, Ontario, Canada on October 10, 1974. The 48-year-old player ended his playing career in November 2011 after he was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome.

He was analyzed to have suffered from the syndrome after getting hit thrice during his career. Similarly, the player even suffers from vision impairment as he was once hit in the eyes with the blade of another player’s stick. 

Pronger was selected for sports through the Ontario under 17 program at the age of 15. He was contacted by the Stratford Cullitons Jr. B (OHA) club for playing in the 1990–91 season.

In the same year, he revealed that he is planning on teaming up with his older brother Sean at Bowling Green State University to play in the NCAA rather than opting to play in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

However, things went opposite to his predictions and the Peterborough Petes selected Pronger in the OHL Priority Selection and as a result, he had to report to Peterborough.      

In 1993, he completed two stand-out seasons with Peterborough, and with his skills in games, he was selected by the Hartford Whalers in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. He was highly praised for his rare skills in imposing size, speed, offensive skill, and physicality. 

The Canadian-born player made his debut in the 1993-94 NHL season and has performed well in 81 games for Whaler thus making his way to the NHL All-Rookie Team.

But, he was so impatient and behaved immaturely after the end of his rookie season. And because of his short-tempered nature, he was traded to the St. Louis Blues.

After joining here, he was given the proper guidance from experts and was made to concentrate on improving his defensive play.

In the 2006 Winter Olympics, Pronger was selected to play for Team Canada and at this time he was under a five-year contract with Edmonton Oilers. And it was his third successive Olympic game.

In June 2006, the team had a chance to play in the Stanley Cup Finals in which they played against Carolina Hurricanes.

Even though the team lost the game, Pronger made history by becoming the first-ever NHL player to score a penalty shot.   

Later he joined numerous other teams including Anaheim Ducks, Philadelphia Flyers, Arizona Coyotes, etc. but, as of the reports he never played for Arizona Coyotes, and thereupon, he was named to the Hockey Hall of Fame in June 2015. 

As his contract expired after the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, he officially retired from the games and later signed with Florida Panthers as their organization’s senior advisor of hockey operations.
